Government Professor Kenneth Greene Receives Dickson Teaching Fellowship
Posted: June 12, 2011
Associate Professor of Government and LLILAS affiliate Kenneth F. Greene is among five UT professors to receive the College of Liberal Arts Raymond Dickson Centennial Endowed Teaching Fellowship, an honor that recognizes faculty who demonstrate exemplary performance and commitment to teaching.
The award provides a one-year fellowship appointment and a $3,000 salary supplement for the 2011–2012 academic year. It was established by the Board of Regents of the University of Texas System in 1982.
Greene, who joined the UT faculty in 2003, is a PhD of UC Berkeley and author of the prize-winning Why Dominant Parties Lose: Mexico’s Democratization in Comparative Perspective. In 2009 he received a Liberal Arts Council Teaching Award for “outstanding commitment to students both within and beyond the classroom” and was also acknowledged by the American Political Science Association and Pi Sigma Alpha “for outstanding teaching in political science."
Among past LLILAS-affiliated recipients of the Dickson Teaching Fellowship are Susan Deans-Smith (History, 2009) and Henry Dietz (Government, 2008).
